Chicago Tribune on Dirty Plotte

“Need a gift book to satisfy even the most niche person on your list? We've got it” / Chicago Tribune / Christopher Borrelli / December 6, 2018

Dirty Plotte: The Complete Julie Doucet ($120, Drawn & Quarterly) is that encyclopedia’s evil twin, as dense and sleazy as New Yorker cartoons are tasteful and minimal. Doucet, the patron saint of anyone who ever moved into a cheap apartment and made chaos from their life, fills every frame of her autobiographical stories with trash and dumb lovers, lousy decisions and body parts. It’s the rare survey that never approaches self-aggrandizing.
